    ===============================================================================
    
    
    Sam & Max is a point and click adventure game, similar in style to the Day of
    the Tentacle, and Monkey Island series of games. The plot for this game is
    simple, yet strange. The game is based on two freelance police, Sam & Max. Near
    the start of the game, Sam & Max find out that they are needed to solve a case
    at the carnival. Travelling over to the carnival, they find that a bigfoot has
    been stolen, and that they are required to somehow find the bigfoot and bring
    him back to the carnival. It's a weird plot, but with all of the excellent
    puzzles, characters and locations in this game, it works very well.
